COMPETING VIEWS

I

Obama gonna pay my bills
Obama gonna cure my ills

Obama gonna give to me
Everything I want for free.

On me and mine Obama dotes
Dat's why he's gonna get our votes.

We's gonna suck da rich man dry
And laugh to see him sit and cry.

We laugh and laugh 'cause its so funny
Dat our bills be paid wiff rich man's money.

~ Ima Mauron 

II

Once "The Rich" have been unseated
ALL of us will be defeated,
'Cause once "The Rich" have been destroyed,
Naught will be left, except a Void ––
A Bottomless Pit –– A Big Black Hole 
Where everyone lives on the Dole.
And I don't mean ol' RINO Bob,
Who’s just a lackey to Those Who Rob.
I'm talkin 'bout The Oligarchs,
Whose money once created parks
And enhanced universities,
Built hospitals to fight disease, 
Palaces where Opera's housed ––
Places at which no one's groused,
Libraries and Railroad Stations
Fit for endless celebrations,
Until that old New Deal was struck.
That changed the rules and killed good luck.
Since then "The Rich," forced to connive
To find a way they might survive,
Have joined with Statists to despise,
Deter, discourage those who'd rise.
We call it Crony Capitalism,
And it has caused the mammoth schism
Yawning now twixt rich and poor,
'Cause we let Marxists in the door.

  3. It's all so damned discouraging.

    There is so much good in the world. Yet, the human race and the so-called governments seem to be unraveling even more than ever.

  9. Thank you Z -- and you, Mr. Dick Wilde, whoever you are -- for your kind and generous remarks.

    As for the quibblers -- and I know you know who you are -- your presence here is tolerated only because the blog needs more comments. Your flippant irrelevancies serve only as 'filler' and will be no longer be tolerated, if and when we ever attract the wide, amiably attentive, profoundly perspicacious audience we know we deserve. ;-)

    Cheerio!

  10. By the way Mr. Dick, is that pronounced Wilde as in Oscar, or Wilde as in Brandon "Shane" de Wilde, who pronounced it "duh WILDA" to rhyme with Hilda?

    HEY! Hilda de Wilde! Now that WOULD be funny, wouldn't it?
